Cooper, Minneapolis Rocks for Holiday Lights

Aaron Landry blogged about this a while back, and I finally got around to checking it out last night. A house at 41st Ave S & 32nd St E has Christmas lights choreographed to Christmas songs. They have an FM station set up for visitors to tune in the music rather than forcing their neighbors to put up with the tunes. Here is 30 seconds taken on my Treo from the car:


I like the giggling in the car. Clearly, we were enjoying the show. Thanks to our local Clark Griswold, we’re really have the holiday spirit now.

Posting YouTube Videos to WordPress Blogs

It turns out that it’s not all that easy to post YouTube videos to WordPress blogs by default. Basically, the editor screws up the embed codes.

Here’s a good solution: the Anarchy Media Player plugin for WordPress lets you link to the pages containing the file you want to embed and takes care of the rest. Load the plug into your plugins folder, edit the config file with the location of your blog, then you’re done. You’ll not see a Flash embed icon on your post edit toolbar. Click that, enter the link to YouTube or other popular online video sites, and you’re done. Pretty slick.

CES Day 3: Sling Box, Toshiba dual core TabNote, and Google

Day 3 of CES, and we’re starting to feel the pain, but it’s so exciting we just can’t stop. In this report we bring you Sling Box, the new dual core Toshiba laptop, and Google in all their Googleness.

Tomorrow is the final day of CES, and we have a lot planned; however, due to when our flights leave we won’t be able to edit any footage until Monday evening. Please be patient with us as we try and hook everything back up in Minneapolis, MN.
